Strange Japanese Guitar for Sale


Recommended Posts

'Micro-Jazzmaster’ 21-fret guitar, believed to made by Teisco - £60.

I bought this a few years ago as a project guitar to modify, but have found myself with very little time and next to no expertise to do so. Sadly, it must go.

At the moment, only the neck pick-up works and it could do with a new set of tuning pegs.

Comes with unique bridge (which can make it sound permanently ‘palm-muted’/surf guitar-y) and three “microphone” buttons (1, 2, 1+2), as well as a “solo/rhythm” option. These operate like the phrasing options found on Jaguars/Jazzmasters.

There is a space for a tremolo arm, but the guitar didn’t come with one when I bought it.

An inscription on the back plate suggests it once belonged to the John Monaco School of Guitars in New York.

Message me on here or email me - ross_mclayAThotmail.co.uk - if interested.

Happy to chuck in a strap and bag too.

Plenty of pictures below:
